ALEX: 3 - We all slept on this miniseries and I'm mad about it! It's Cary Joji Fukunaga's best work since True Detective S1 and an AMAZING acting showcase for both Stone and Jonah Hill. Emma Stone shows so much range in this performance and if you haven't seen it, it's on Netflix and I highly recommend it!

ALEX: 1 - I'm absolutely obsessed with all three main performances in the movie, but Stone's is honestly my favorite (and one of my favorites of the decade). Her character has the most well-developed arc. One second I'm rooting for her and the next I'm rooting against her. And that's all thanks to Stone's performance. The most mature performance of her career and also legit hilarious. I feel like Colman and Weisz have gotten the most love for this movie and Stone's been slept on and she does not deserve that at all!

DEE: 1 - I mean...this is the only correct #1.

1. OLIVE PENDERGHAST - EASY A (2010)

From Wikipedia: Prompted by her popular best friend to spill details of her boring weekend, Olive (Emma Stone), a clean-cut teen, decides to spice things up by telling a little lie about losing her virginity. When the high-school busybody (Amanda Bynes) overhears the conversation and spreads it all over campus, Olive is suddenly notorious but for the wrong reasons. Rotten Tomatoes says "It owes a huge debt to older (and better) teen comedies, but Easy A proves a smart, witty showcase for its irresistibly charming star, Emma Stone." Time Magazine named Emma Stone's performance one of the ten best film performances of 2010, writing that "Stone lends winning maturity and a gift for making sassy dialogue sound natural. This 22-year-old is an actress-personality — a star — around whom Hollywood could build some pretty good movies."

ALEX: 4 - One of the most iconic teen movie roles ever. The movie that made Emma Stone who she is. Though the script is really funny, I don't think the movie would be half as funny without her leading it.

DEE: 4 - Just love her performance in this movie. Such a star-making performance.
